Anyways, the real reason for today's post was a trip down memory lane. While re-living the early days of High Gear cyclery I stumbled upon the profile of Emporia Legend Tim Mohn, which I highly recommend you take a peek at. I had forgotten how Tim and I were once bitter rivals . Take this quote from his page for example:
Why should someone take up cycling as a new hobby?s the perfect sport.
Cycling is the perfect sport.
Done by all ages.
All races, nationalities and religions.
Big one’s, small one’s, even somewhat bald one’s (no offense Lelan).
I will ride till the day I die. And so can you.
Very funny Dr. Seuss. Yep, he spared no excuse at chopping away at my self esteem and I made sure to challenge his man hood whenever an opportunity would present itself. Which was basically every time I came into the shop. And now those days are gone. Distance has put an end to our 'love to hate each other' relationship. I can only imagine that in my absence, and lacking a suitable trash talker, he has fallen off the pace. But don't you worry Timmy. One day I shall return to speak slanderously of your name and challenge you to a bout of two-wheeled debauchery.
In the meantime, enjoy this video. Particularly that handsome devil of a drummer.

Oh Tim, how I miss you, ya big galoot.
